Canyoning (known as canyoneering in the U.S.) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include walking , scrambling , climbing , jumping , abseiling and swimming .
Although hiking down a canyon that is non-technical ( canyon hiking ) is often referred to as canyoneering , the terms canyoning and canyoneering are more often associated with technical descents those that require rappels and ropework, technical climbing or down-climbing, technical jumps, andtechnical swims.
Canyoning is a new adventure sport geared to the ultimate sports-enthusiast. It is an activity that involves abseiling, sliding, jumping, swimming, and climbing down waterfalls through steep canyon walls to deep pools. This unique combination of skills gives the intrepid canyoneer the freedom to explore some of the most ruggedly beautiful, yet forbidden places in the world. As many true adventure seekers have discovered, the most exciting spot for swimming begins at the very edge of a 45m waterfall. After the first descent, we abseil another 25m down a steep canyon, past wild rock formations, through powerful blasts of water. At the end of the excursion, we make our last jump and submerge ourselves into a pool. Once on the ground, we rest on a beach within the canyon walls and swim out between narrow boulders.
From sheer cliffs and slides to pounding waterfalls, you will experience all the joys of canyoning. Apart from all the fun and games and despite its apparent simplicity, this sport requires the guidance of an expert. Our instructors are experienced canyoneer and believe that the practice of safe canyoning necessitates the proper gear, continual vigilance and a good knowledge of the aquatic environment
